aparna (i am more comfortable w/ calling u by ur name )and goth princess(sorry i dont know ur name) u guys desi women have booty. we just weren't built to be skinny like other races. we are made to be covered well. i constantly feel fat and i am not. did u actually know that when women look at themselves they overestimate their hips and stomachs by 20% while these same women can estimate the lengths and widths and depths of boxes very easily. first what u see when look at urself isnt necessarily true. then i hate the fact that people r always telling us to be skinny. like my friend says that her aunt says karishma u r too smart, and too dark and too fat u need to lose weight and stuff otherwise no one will marry u. and that is just beyond disgusting. i just feel that society puts too much pressure on us and it ain't fair.

Hey Zara your explanation was very comforting . And Harooj i'm not fat either . But like i said i am not on the skinnier side . And its hard to be post 30 when your metabolism slows down .Cry

taking care of your health and trying not to be overweight and keeping oneself healthy with exercise is good but obsessing over it and taking extreme measures like not eating at all to fit into size 0-2 is scary. nowadays all we see are more and more skinny women on tv all the time. Be it tv commercials, shows or beauty pageants. it makes us women especially young girls between 13-18 very conscious about their weight. they forget that these are the years they need good nutrients and need to eat well instead they are becoming more weight conscious and turning anorexic and bulimic.

i was watching a rerun of will and grace few weeks back, in that will was commenting on how much weight grace has put on. debra messing who plays grace is a bulimic woman and calling her fat shows how fixated these showbiz people are about weight.

i have many friends who are obsessed with reducing weight for various reasons. major reason is not feeling appreciated or being teased by someone close like husband or siblings or other relatives. it's sad that some of the girls starve to loose few pounds and then they need treatment to be able to eat normal food.

metabolism means "rate" at which fat in your body breaks . So as you grow older the "rate" at which fat is breaking slows down and you end up storing more than burning.Smile
